Teresa last edited Jul 04, Austen lived mainly during the Georgian period and Bronte during the Victorian, when gothic stories were all the rage.
Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, a world-famous rock star on the brink of a huge comeback.
Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance. But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is soon tested by an agonizing secret from his past.
Torn between her feelings for Nico and his fateful secret, Jane must decide: Does being true to herself mean giving up on true love? An irresistible romance interwoven with a darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers.

The author made several attempts at creating romantic tension through dialogue between Nico and Jane, but nothing resonated and I remained unmoved by their trite declarations of love unless you count being moved to roll my eyes.
Nico Rathburn also utilizes the F-word rather more than you might expect of the re-done Rochester, especially in a YA novel and his crazy wife manages to get in a few crude digs as well.
Multiple use of the F-word and some other crude language. Also some descriptions of sexual encounters between the two main characters.
